Fit Chick in The City is one of the many blogs I love to read. She’s committed to living an active, healthy lifestyle, but she’s also real. One of my favorite features on her blog is the weekly Say It Do It post. It’s pretty simple. Every Monday, Jess lists her workout plans for each day of the week. By sharing them out loud for everyone to read she increases her motivation and accountability to stick to her intentions and make her health a priority in her busy week.
Since I started nutrition school about a month ago, I’ve noticed that I’m having a harder time following through on my weekly activity commitments. I have great intentions, but our days are so busy right now that my regular workouts have started to slip and I feel it. I feel it in the tightness in my hips and the afternoon energy slumps. I enjoy my workouts and I feel better when I do them regularly. For me, that usually means 30 minutes a day 6 days a week. So this week, I shared my intentions over at Fit Chick in the City. If you’re looking for a little more accountability, I’d encourage you to give it a try.
Here’s what I shared.
Monday: Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown DVD workout
Tuesday: Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred DVD workout
Wednesday: Ruah Movement Warrior DVD workout
Thursday: Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones DVD workout
Friday: Piloxing class at the gym
Saturday: Teaching our oldest to ride his bike, which means lots of running for me
Sunday: Taking the kids swimming so I’ll swim laps during the 10 min rest periods for my workout
It’s gonna be a busy and rainy week here, so I’m planning indoor workouts I can do in 45 minutes or less.
